Open / Adult Comps

The All-Nations Youth Championships (NEW FOR 2022)

This exciting new competition series, combines the National Championships across the UK and Ireland. It uses the already established events in Scotland, Ireland and Wales, and adds new championships in England. Bouldering and lead are seperate. There are already many competitors who travel to compete in the championships outside their own country, and this will allow their results to act as an additional part of the GB Climbing performance pathway. It will, as it has always done, enable competitors to meet new friends and visit different climbing centres but also now find out their ranking across a greater number of competitors at National level.
